The Mercury Orchestra, national winner of the American Prize for Orchestral Performance, performs lush evocations of human triumphs and foibles from German opera and song as it opens its tenth season. Alban Berg’s “symphony” created from his operatic masterpiece Lulu reveals layers of struggle between an individual’s will and the structural norms of culture and society. In several beloved songs and in a suite from the majestic opera Der Rosenkavalier, Richard Strauss delves deeply into the bewildering complexity of love, from fiery passion and stirring devotion to loss and reconciliation. Grammy Award-nominated operatic soprano Chelsea Basler joins the orchestra for this unique performance.
